    Hello, I'm looking to buy 4 of the correctly plated upper control arm nuts for the ENDS of the shafts. I see that "The Parts Place" seems to have the correct washers but I could nut find the nuts listed. Are these repro'd or would correct plated nuts be NOS only. Answer here or send me a PM if you prefer. Cheers and best regards, Mike

    Thanks Brian but I'm really looking for a set with the original finish. Do you know if the nuts are reproduced? Best regards, Mike

    Yes they are. I have purchased a few sets before,with the correct comical washers.
    Todd should have them too.
    I should note: I have noticed the original nuts in two different thicknesses. I’m sure it was simply a supplier difference. Time of build,plant,etc.

    Hello, Which set of washers looks correct? They didn't have two different size washer, front to rear did they? Thanks all, Mike

    Mine are NOT Shiney Chrome like some companies are offering. (Nor were they from the factory)
    These are zinc plated...……

    $24.00 for the set.

    I have 1,000's of restoration fasteners in stock for our Buick's! Feel free to give me a call.

    Believe it or not we've taken a part some original cars that had different size washers. I've seen two sizes throughout the years. In my opinion they should match in size but if the assembly line ran out of a batch who knows if they cared whether or not the next batch matched perfectly?!?!?

    When we restore them we make sure they match. Maybe that's my OCD!
